Even if you do love wreaking havoc on your immune system, you’ll still want to make this recipe. They’re vegan and gluten free and have protein, fiber, and healthy fats from the chickpeas and almond butter. They are the perfect bite size for an on the go or pre workout snack.
This recipe is also an easy way to meal prep some snacks for during the week. It’s as simple as blending everything up in a food processor and rolling the dough into balls. Got kids? Get them involved in the kitchen by having them help you form the balls. Then you can all say “Got Milk” while you enjoy your cookie dough.
You can simplify it even more by skipping the rolling step and just whipping out a spoon to eat it straight out of the container. Meal prep is all about saving time! You’re obviously just being more efficient.
